Fiesta Slaw

Developed by Sonja Goedkoop

Coleslaw is a staple side with BBQ and Tex-Mex style dishes. This citrus-based version combines the natural sweetness of orange juice, mango and apple with the heat of jalapeño pepper to help bring out the natural flavors of the veggies. Featuring colorful bell peppers, this slaw is rich in beta-carotene, vitamins A and C and contains a variety of phytochemicals that may help reduce your risk of cancer. Pair with fish tacos, grilled chicken or use as a flavorful topping in salads and wraps.
